When I say I havent watched Star Wars, people get torches and pickforks

I'm used to it, but still >_>;;


Dude. Same here. -_-

People tell me they're the Lamborghinis of all nerd films, but then they freely admit to the acting being cheesy, the special effects comparable to a puppet show, and the plot cliche. No thanks.

Sci-fi books...er. Most of what I read is dystopian, though I s'pose it still falls under that category. C.S. Lewis' Perelandra series is amazing, like everything else that man wrote. B)

umm..... hate to break it to you.. but sta wars invented special effects. Im sure yhat george lucas is rather sorry that hed made the in the 70s!!!!! look at other sci fi that came out in the same year. Are the sfx comparable to a puppe show now? I love star trek, and hey, shatner was REALLY CHEESY. star wars is not cheesy. Calling the plot cheesy is like calling lotr dry -_-
I really hope I havent started a fanboy war (which I will participate in if nessasary) XD
I'm fearful, I'm fearful, I'm fearful of flying, and flying is fearful of me.

2 authors that should be instantly mentioned, although probably pre-assumed:

Heinlein, my favorite is Starship Troopers, although I have read many and especially Double Star and Moon is a Harsh Mistress

Asimov, Foundation and Caves of Steel are MUST reads.

 

Other authors: Andre Norton, Orson Scott Card, Douglas Adams, Frank Herbert, ETC.
